Is Britney Spears losing it? On the heels of the news that her album, “Britney Jean” brought in her worst sales ever, and now RadarOnline.com can reveal that her E! documentary, I Am Britney Jean was a huge “flop” as well!
According to new ratings data from Nielsen, the sneak peek at Spears’ Vegas show brought in just 706,000 viewers when it aired on E! on Sunday night, leading to some online critics to label it a “flop.” That same night, ABC‘s airing of the 1965 version of The Sound Of Music brought in more than 6.5 million.
When Spears’ documentary “For the Record” aired on MTV in 2009, it averaged 3.7 million viewers, the largest average viewers on a regular Sunday at that time.
TV ratings aren’t the only declining numbers for Spears. Her album “Britney Jean” debuted at #4 earlier this month with just over 64,000 copies sold during her first week on shelves, giving her her worst showing ever.
As Radar has reported, her team has been shielding her from the bad news while she prepares for her Vegas debut tomorrow night, December 27. Despite the fact that her team slammed reports of sluggish ticket sales, seats are still available for purchase for opening night and future shows.
